A quick and easy read.
My actual rating is 3.5 but we don't have half stars here so I'll round it up to 4.
This was a good read though at times a little confusing. I'm going to list my likes and dislikes for this review so let's do the negative first.
What I Disliked:
There are many many characters and some that I still have no idea why they were part of the story, though maybe it will be revealed in future books.
The world building was lacking a little aswell. It had the potential to be explosive but it fell flat.
There wasn't much back story where Lillim is concerned. She was always on about being reincarnated and people knew her from her last life, but who was she? Why was she reincarnated etc? Not enough detail.
What I liked:
Lillim was a solid character. She was easily likable and you can't help but root for her.
The plot was really fast paced. There is plenty of action and adventure that you fly through the book and it's an enjoyable read.
There is a lot to this book which you know will slowly unravel over the series so it keeps your attention.
It has Dragons!! Admittedly not much to do with them, but still Dragons!!
In all an engaging if some what confusing read. Even though I got lost sometimes, it held my attention to the end and I liked the idea of the book enough to continue on with the series.
Rebecca Roberts did a good job reading the book. Even with the amount of characters, I knew when she voiced a new one. I will definitely check out more read by her.
